privacy laws and we need to update those laws. the last time the electronics communications privacy act was updated was in 1986 and a lot has changed since then. >> host: grover norquist what kind of access to law enforcement officials in the government have to our e-mails today? >> guest: right now it's not treated as if it's regular mail, snail mail. they can go into it as a third-party and put it up on the cloud. what we need to do is update the law to go alongside the changes in technologies that are sending each other letters. we send each other e-mails instead of keeping europe letter in your pocket you may stored in the cloud somewhere and that's should have the same privacy that you regular snail mail does in the post office delivering something and if we can do that. we have updated this from time to time, the technology changes. the technology has been changing quicker but to send someone an e-mail is like sending them a letter. it's the same thing. the fourth amendment is still there. >> host: also joining our roundtable today is -- of the hill newspaper. >> my first question
the person is. there is no positive i.d. we expect more details at a briefing from law enforcement in an hour and will bring that live. we've learned the identity of the third victim killed in the attack, lindsay liu. the school confirmed her identity earlier this afternoon. 8-year-old martin richard and 29-year-old krystle campbell were also killed in the horrible bombings. 178 people were injured and at least 100 have been released from area hospitals. i'm joined by john king and cnn analyst. juliet, start with you. you are a former homeland security official. what are you hearing on the latest of the developments especially when it comes to this individual who was spotted on videotape? >> essentially what you said, you know, that the idea they would have a name that soon seemed way too quick for someone in custody unless he was well known to law enforcement already or was under surveillance. right now this is exactly how you would expect an investigation to unfold. there will now be -- trying to figure out what his name is but, jake, the key is what are they going to say at 5:00? we should
of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
to the hospital. that is straight off cbs. we ask average american to assist law enforcement in identifying who the bomber was. see something, say some. now we have someone who was being deported due to national security concerns, who was at the scene, he can possibly i.d. everybody, we're asking that in boston, and we had this g there, and he was detailed in the hospital, covered with blood, and that we will deport him. ofif i might, i am unaware anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to boston. i do not know where -- eli >> he is being deported. >> like i said, i do not even think he was technically a person of interest or a suspect. that was a wash, and i am not aware of any proceeding there. i will clarify that, but i think this is an example of why it is so impnt leaw endo its j >> that is why i say we wouldn't you agree that it is negligent for as the administration to deport someone who was at the scene of the bombing, and we are on to deport him, not being able to question him any more? >> i am not going to answer that question. it is so full of the s
on. we did not decide to enforce that law, we decided to come up with reasonable speed limits and then enforce that law. we gave amnesty to all the people that had been illegally driving. get the back taxes. let's get to get them in the light of day so they are e andcted from abus an exploitation. we have high tech workers that don't come here but go to other countries and compete with us. we need people from ranchers to derek to farmers. i don't think this bill goes far enough. i would like to see more, but this is progress. >> your statement mentions several examples of how terrorist disadvantage of our system. even mention how awesome terrorists have applied and received asylum. you mentioned the bill would allow people will have filed a frivolous asylum applications benefits under the legalization system. do you know how many people fall into that category and how does the bill before us make the current system weaker? >> i do outlined in my written testimony a number of pages of terrorists who have taken advantage of asylum. we have most notably the case just a few weeks
evening. law-enforcement going house-to-house in the greater boston area searching for the terror suspect that is armed and possibly wired with explosives. the fbi and law enforcement searching with the 19 year-old who has managed to elude capture since this fire fight late last night. the second suspect in the monday boston marathon bombing. his brother tamerlan tsarnaev is dead and the boston area was under a lockdown and tell one hour ago urged jews stayed behind locked doors and told they were given the all clear to leave their homes. the largest shutdown in the history of any metropolitan area. here is the timeline. 10:20 p.m. last night and armed robbery reeorted at a 711 near the m.i.t. campus shortly after police received reports of shots fired on the campus. police responded to the scene and discovered in may t. campus police officer john collier shot in his car and was transported where he was pronounced dead. then the brothers hijacked a car then released him unharmed and a gas station but then less than one hour later it after it adjacent to the boston suburb during that chase
on accountable government to enforce the rule of law. there are two problems that grow on government like mold on otherwise probably good bread -- corruption and inefficiency. it is important -- government corruption and inefficiency are what stands today between the american people and the economy and society that they deserve. to combat those pathologies, a new conservativism should center around three principles -- equality, diversity, and sustainability. let me explain. the first and most important of these couples is equality. the only way for the free market and civil society to function is to align the interests of a strong and those of the week, to have everyone play by the same set of rules. define this principle as how our government has always corrected itself. in the past the problem was political discrimination helped the disconnected down. today the specialty is dispensing political privileges to prop the well-connected up. in either case, the corruption is the same, official inequality, twisting the law to make some people more equal than others, making it harder for some to su
to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our lives but keep our eyes open. to make sure if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. the investigation continues. the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to
:00 on the east coast. residents have flooded into the streets to applaud, to say thank you to law enforcement. to the massive law enforcement presence in watertown, massachusetts. the end of a 28-hour lock down, essentially in the city of massachusetts. nobody knew for sure it was going to end this way, but they got him. boston police say they have taken their suspect into custody alive. they brought in an ambulance to transport him. he suffered a gunshot wound and lost blood. it was unclear how weakened he was. this followed the shootout last night. blocks from the neighborhood from the suspect's older brother was killed in a fire fight with police. this suspect taken into custody alive. remarkable ending, including the live shots right now. remarkable, including the reaction of people of greater boston and watertown specifically. remarkable ending to what has been an almost unbelievably tense week-long ordeal in boston and day-long ordeal involving the lock down. almost complete lock down of one of the largest cities in the united states. >> joining us live on the ground in watertown, massa
, you're very close to that car and everything that's taking place. have you heard anything from law enforcement to you and other residents in the area about evacuating and staying toward the front of the building? >> yeah, we had. what seemed to be army personnel and knocked on our door, told us to lock up the doors, go to the back of the house and don't come out and stay low. >> is that where you are? you seem close to the activity. >> right now, we -- i'm with a few of my roommates here, and we're in the living room. kind of watching what's being televised so i can stay on skype with you. >> and you posted photos on twitter and you said your twitter handle is akitz. and you said you just posted a photo of the bomb robot. and earlier this evening, you posted some photos of bullet holes in your home. we're going to put those up. can you describe what was taking place at that time? >> yes, so, we actually -- my roommates and i didn't even notice the bullet holes until at least an hour and a half later. and then we saw the significant hole through the westward wall in our house. and w
multiple times and killed. then, an outbust in watertown, two suspects engaged in a firefight with law enforcements. witnesses reported hearing at least three blast. one eyewitness we spoke to said that he saw the suspects tossing what appeared to be hand grenaded and a pressure cooker bomb at law enforcement officials. i want to bring now in nbc's justice correspondent pete williams live in washington now. >> reporter: well a couple of things. number one, we have heard that one police officer was killed earlier tonight. and now, we hear there may have been a second police officer killed. we have one report about that. as for the two people who were arrested tonight -- or the two, let's use the suspects related to this incident here, we know that one is in custody, and we believe now that we have had at least one report that the other, authorities up there, may be dead. i think they're trying to confirm that now. they don't know for sure. and that's one of the reasons you earlier saw that report that they wanted people to stay in their homes and lock their doors. another possibility is
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
the doors locked and not open the door unless there is a uniform identified law enforcement officer on the other side of it. >> part of that process included controlled explosions. police say it was done merely out an abundance of caution. authorities hoping for some evidence as to dzhokhar's whereabouts. nbc news national investigative correspondent michael issakof is on the ground. >> we've been promised a briefing for several hours now that was going to give us an update on where things stood. clearly, it's a fluid situation. the last one we got just about an hour and a half ago was there have been some new leads authorities were pursuing. what that meant we do not know. clearly they do not have tsarnaev in custody right now. they still have very deep concerns about the threat he poses and the threat that others -- that an accomplice or accomplices may pose. and the most significant threat of all is the fact there might be ieds out there like the one found this morning that have been -- that have left on the streets of boston. making it very difficult, even if they get tsarnaev,
out, they had the night vision goggles, they -- that helps them, that gives the law enforcement an advantage. then they throw in the grenades. i'm not positive they did that. i'm just saying that is a likely thing they could have done then, because it wouldn't have hurt him. but it might give them yet another advantage to make him more confused and disoriented. maybe when they're sending in the robot. >> dick clark, item tell us how quickly they would move in to start talking to him. >> well, depends upon what the doctor's allow, frankly. if the doctors can patch him up and get him to where he could talk, then there's an issue of whether or not they have to mir r mirandize him. there are some circumstances under the law where they do not have to mirandize him right away if they think there's an imminent threat. they can ask him questions without giving him his rights. but i don't think at this point leit'sar there's threat. tell m the team they send in to talk to him. how many people send to go inniin i initially the. >> well, it's a small ground of people talking to him, but th
and thank you for your service overseas as well. we have just gotten this, a bulletin from law enforcement. people being asked to be on the lookout for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and a black sweatshirt, possible foreign national, accent unclear, what the accent of the individual is, but believes to have some sort of an accent. we are just getting that information. john king is working his sources now. he joins us with the latest on the investigation. john, what are you hearing? >> well, that bolo, shorthanded police lingo for be on the lookout, just issued. i will give you reporting from all of our cnn team. a little more on that bolo. law enforcement is looking for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack, possible foreign national because of an accent. the bolo notes to law enforcement officials says five minutes before the first explosion, this individual attempted to gain entry to a restricted area and when turned away, he broke eye contact and pulled his sweatshirt and hood over his head. no further info on him is what the bolo says. this is law e
right now has been a nightmare for federal and local law enforcement. the leaks that came out today should be an embarrassment. i'm certain that they are. there may be a couple of meetings going on with the chief of police in boston whose department tweeted out information about an arrest today which was completely erroneous. this has been embarrassing for law enforcement at the wrong time. >> so it wasn't the a.p., it was the tweet and the a.p. picked up the tweet? >> yes, the police department apparently tweeted out some information about an arrest. >> bob, talk to me about that and the fact that they still have made considerable progress, have they not, since the terror attack occurred. a lot of people didn't think that they would have a person of interest either in custody or even an image of that person by this point. >> well, since 9/11, the department of homeland security and law enforcement at large has really taken some really tremendous strides and using technology to be able to assist law enforcement, the cameras, surveillance cameras, all those things become part of this
this pursuit. several law enforcement officers were injured. , was killed during that explosion and since that point, we know that he had not been able to be located dzhokar tsarnaev with a search of watertown but it just appears that 1 mi. from where i am not located at that they have found them. reporting live, back to you. >> pam: you disturb a live report from the scene that there is activity. that this second suspect has been handed down. there has been reports of flashback explosions and he has been-- pinned down. another day of boston people on edge. on the phone with us david fisher action we've a live report, from david fisher he is a terrorist specialist. can you give us a sense of how things are unfolding? can you hear us? >> pam: hello? >> yes i can hear you. pam, there is a real conflict here. want to be endangered. and i hope that we can do everything possible to arrest this suspect because he has a lot of information that only he can answer. we're hoping that the is able to be captured, alive. >> pam: what is your sense of these brothers with their pictures shown. and leadi
friend, and i like him a lot, but if he's asking us to ar understanding of the due process of law that has established us as a unique light among the darkness in this world, then i have to think through that very carefully. yes, i want to be able to question these guys. no, i don't want them to get all lawyered-up. but at the same time we're a country of laws. i do want our country to acknowledge terrorism when it's obvious terrorism. for example, i want us to say, fort hood, that was terrorism. little rock, the shooting of the soldier outside the recruiting office, let's be honest, let's say that's terrorism. the question is, do we suspend the normal due processes of law, whether it's to these guys, or to you or to me, and to designate somebody as an enemy combatant? that's a tougher one. in fact, it's tough enough that probably the smart thing to do is to bring judge andrew napolitano on board. i know he's got his view of senator lindsey graham's comments. i welcome judge napolitano, senior judicial analyst for fox news. judge, do we designate this guy enemy combatant or treat h
of responsibility has been reported. overnight a law enforcement officers have searched an apartment in boston to investigate whether or not this was the person who attacked. here is the new video of the search. some investigators were seen early this morning leaving the home in revere, mass.. caring brown paperbacks, plastic trash bags and a duffel bag. so far, investigators said they do not have anyone under arrest or have a motive in the attack. if they have reported that a saudi national in his early 20s, in the united states. on a student visa, has been questioned. >> a 12 year-old boy from martinez was hurt in the boston marathon last. aaron hern was as the finish line to cheer on his mother, who was running in this year's race. kron4 will tran is live in martinez this morning with the latest on aaron's condition and reaction from friends and family. >> his mother even though she finished the race she stated that on a face but that has been a difficult time and that she wants to get back to her son who is an intensive care. if she will like to send out her thoughts and prayers and that
quickly walk away from it, what is not normal. that we only have so many law enforcement people. we have a guy in times where the waterway and there may be a normal explanation for it. i get on the metra system and by putting my earphones and a listen to my music or whatever when that is probably not a very smart thing, particularly for a guy like me to do. but it is just being aware -- you know, it is so easy. when i went to vietnam ever went said, stay alert, stay alive. i think people will be a little bit more alert right now, but just look for things that are out of place. is an author.t is ned zsa,ler republican. 'd think throrism comes at all different forms and different faces, not just literally, but metaphorically, too. you cannot say that it is not political or that it is. it is hard to label active terrorism -- acts of terrorism sometimes providing it is up to with identifying terrorism. we sometimes let our guard down and i feel like we do not know when the time is to act. when something should be under suspicion. we wait for something to happen. tough one. is a you are
been turned the boat into swiss cheese. realize law enforcement, i'm sure as a group has an understanding that they would like to do everything they can like in any other situation. they would like to give this individual every opportunity to surrender. we need to talk to him. he has information we need. but there are rules of engagement that will suggest if your life is in danger, the life of somebody else do what you have to do. try to take him alive. don't put your life on the line to do it. >> boston p.d. car coming out. vehicles coming and going. we have seen this all night long. here are folks told a half hour before the gunshots it's okay to come out. folk in watertown who were following instructions all day and all day we have been seeing the kids looking at the grown-ups in their lives and the grown-ups were told don't come to the door unless you are certain it's law enforcement. we saw house-to-house searches taking place with law enforcement in military dress. automatic weapons drawn. came to the house. emptied the house of occupants and went in to search it. t
with police. law enforcement fills say that both are from the russian region near chechnya and have been living in the united states with family members for about a decade. their estranged uncle spoke if maryland a short time ago. >> jihad, turn yourself in. and act forgiveness. if the injured, and those who left, ask forgiveness from these people. if we're ashamed, people are ashame on the family, our family, you put shame on 9 entire chechen. >> across boston, an unprecedented situation. the entire city and metropolitan area, all surrounding suburbs effectively shut down. all mass transit suspended. no a no-fly zone in effect. people have been told to stay inside their homes. >> keep the doors locked, do not open the door unless there is a uniformed, identified law enforcement officer on other side of it, requesting to come inside. >> there have been victims, police say that the bombing suspect shot and killed, 26-year-old sean collier. an m.i.t. patrol officer around 10:30 on campus last night. a short time later, they reportedly carjacked a mercedes suv in cambridge. that led to a po
locomotives. about half a billion dollars to be spent on these new locomotives. in that section of law, one sentence was added that said these must be 100% american made. no one was making locomotives in america before that. but siemens, the german corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers in the world said, oh, half a billion dollar well, can make locomotives in america, sure. in sacramento, california, they opened a manufacturing plant, probably somewhere between 200 and 300 people working there today manufacturing 100% american made locomotives and on may 134, three years after they began this process, the first 100% american made locomotive in probably more than a century rolled onto the tracks of america. we can do this. h.r. 549 will provide that opportunity, using american-taxpayer money. i have another bill that does the same for wind and solar projects. we can do these things and put our mind to it and get past this business of austerity. we cannot solve this problem of american jobs with an austerity budget. we see it failing here in europe and united states as the long-term u
a suspicious substance in it, we are told, wolf, by a law enforcement source that there are similarities to the letter sent to senator wicker. what exactly does that mean i've asked my sources, so far, wolf, inconclusive at this point. we do know there were some marks, i guess you could say identifying marks in the wicker letter, a postmark from memphis, tennessee. there was no return sender. we don't know if that nor the message included in the letter to senator wicker if that bears the similarity, but we are being told that there are similarities. so it certainly makes you wonder if it could have been sent from the same person or if they think -- if authorities think it is. we're certainly digging on that at this point. you can see in the lower corner of the screen, we're waiting the white house screening. it was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. it's not that unusual for it to run a little later than what it is now. so we do know of course the white house press secretary jay carney will be receiving a lot of questions about these developments. but at this point it's also very much an issue, wo
. there are many, many unanswered questions tonight, including unconfirmed reports on devices found. law enforcement officials have not confirmed that there were other unsploided bombs. the official confirmation is that there were two devices. to the extent that there were other devices today, isolated and treated in some way by law enforcement, those may have been devices that were investigated as suspect packages and done away with by law enforce. . no arrests have been made. the investigation is now being headed by the fbi in conjunction with other federal and state and local agencies. i want to bring in a young man who is an eyewitness. he was eating with co-workers when he heard the first explosion. so you're about 100 yards away. what did you hear? >> bewere inside the restaurant. heard the first explosion. kind of shook the building a little bit. we kind of wondered what it was. looked outside and saw some smoke. actually ran outside. then the second one blew up about 100 yards from us. >> did they sound like they were about the same size? >> the first one sounded small, because i
? >> we're told fran townsend has a federal source, i have a boston law enforcement source saying an arrest has been made. that is a dramatic breakthrough. waiting for more information. i was told earlier this morning an operation was under way after they had clearly identified a suspect. the breakthrough came, remember, just last night, we were talking about how much progress they made in the how and exactly when. but they hadn't gotten to the who. i'm told based on a video camera at lord & taylor department store a few blocks from here, based on a video camera from that store fixed on the location from the second bombing, across the street from the second bombing, they got what they were looking for. video analysis showing a male showing up and placing the black bag with the explosive device in it, and because of the video enhancement technology, mostly dprept sto from the department store, they clearly identified a suspect, a single suspect and an arrest has been made. a briefing scheduled for later this evening, obviously. >> so let's reset chronologically. do we know what poi
protecting the community. it gives you a feeling of unity. i can't remember the last time i have seen law enforcement cheered like this as they drive-thru with lights flashing. there is a helicopter flying overhead as well. the helicopter that played a big role in spotting the suspects. they are cheering the helicopter, the police cars. just an incredible night in watertown, brian. >> i'm sitting here thinking i have known a lot of cops. i grew up with a lot. i have done a lot of ride alongs on the night shift. if you have known a police officer and you have been with them it can sometimes feel like the most thankless job in the world. yet on their worst day ever to have their best reception ever on the job, nothing wrong with this in the world. this is awfully gratifying. they have done something extraordinary. >> reporter: exactly. in talking to the police officers, they really feel that. a police officer was lost at m.i.t. another officer was badly wounded. you know, they took hits along the way here. it could have been a lot worse. in talking to people in the community, law enforcemen
be held for questioning under the law of war. i'm asking this administration to leave on the table the option if the evidence warrants to designate this i had as an enemy combatcombatant. >> john: meanwhile other critics are wondering if the fbi did not do enough to investigate tamer tamerian. among those are republican new york congressman peter king. >> the fbi has given information as being potential terrorists, they don't look at them and then they carry out murders after this. what went wrong. >> john: but jay carney insisted that the fbi had done its job. >> the fbi followed up on the information that it received about tamerian tsarnaev. they investigated him thoroughly and did not find terrorism domestic or foreign. >> joining us a counter counterterrorism expert welcome back to "viewpoint." >> thanks, good to be here. >> john: happy to have you. one suspect is dead and the other is captured and may be communicating with police. what are the big outstanding questions that still need to be answered at this point. >> the first question you're going to ask are there accomplices
with our government's top national security priority, which is the lawful effective and humane interrogation of this subject for the purposes of gathering intelligence. the boston attacks were clearly inspired by the violent ideology of transnationallist islamist terrorism. so we need to learn everything we can about what foreign terrorists or terrorist groups the suspect and his brother might have associated with, whether they were part of additional plots to attack our nation, and what other relevant information the suspect may possess that could prevent future attacks against the united states or our interests. i think we need to delve further into this whole issue of the education that some people who are motivated by these base ideologies obtain over the internet and the effect that it's having. we should at least know about that. our civilian justice system offers a responsible option for striking this balance with american citizens. it allows the justice department to delay reading a suspect his miranda rights if doing so is in the interest of -- quote -- "public safety.
this would issue a statement but that will not happen. they have learned from a federal law enforcement source, at this hour officials are looking for two suspects in the deadly boston marathon terror attack. they are distributing photos of the men to the law enforcement community. however, they are not let releasing the images to the media. one is wearing a backpack and the other appears to have a bag of some kind. earlier today there were multiple reports authorities got this important piece of information from a department store surveillance video near the finish line of the marathon. we go live back to boston, our very own bill hemmer standing by. i understand it, bill, you have seen these photos? >> good evening to you. thanks to my colleague, rick, who you will speak to in a couple minutes on your program here. i have seen the picture and the images, and you can clearly see, you know, the faces of these two persons described in the report rick broke a few hours ago. but with regard to that, sean, you think about theence that wad and was postponed and later cancelled. you think abo
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
told to shelter in place, as you well know. and as a result of this, law enforcement authorities are very hopeful that they will be able to conclude their search by going door to door. last check, they had about 70% of that accomplished. we're still waiting for an afternoon briefing. we don't know when that will occur. but in the early morning briefing, they did say there were new developments they were trying to run down and firm up and they would bring us those at the afternoon briefing. of course, as you know, things are changing quite rapidly and as a result of that, that briefing may get pushed back once again. so, that's what we know at this point. and they came, the suspects, as you know, came from an area in russia quite close to chechnya. we are still translating those tapes that we got from the father, an interview that he did with reuters. it's in russian, we're translating it. a number of the family members have been speaking out with very diverse opinions on this whole situation. so we're working on those, we'll bring them to you when we have them. maria and andrew,
